Flushing Remonstrance: Birthplace of Religious Freedom

The Old Quaker Meeting House has been used by Flushing Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends as a house of worship for more than 300 years. The house remains today much as when it was first built, with dark, warm floorboards, simple benches and hand-hewn timber ceiling beams. To step across the threshold is to leave the present behind and to enter a profoundly sacred space seasoned by centuries of devotion. To those who visit, the Meeting House is a peaceful reminder of an eventful and historic past. For more information, visit flushingfriends.org
